Hey PinkIsCool,

A shockmount is a way of lightly securing the mic in place. Large diaphram microphones can be sensitive to the slightest vibrations. For example, if you have a really springy or hollow mic stand and accidently nudge it you'll create some unwanted vibrations that can be translated by that sensitive mic. The shockmount tries to isolate those vibrations.

The mic itself rests on two bungee cords wrapped in a pattern around the mic via 16 metal brackets. It shouldn' go anywhere anytime soon. The MXL990 is a great mic, it's a really good quality entry-level mic, great bang for the buck. You will love this mic.

Okay thanks for your trouble but I guess what I'm really trying to ask here is what kind of stand will I have to buy for this sucker?

Your standard mic stand will support it.

it does work quite well for vocals. and it works great for acoustic guitars. we use it alot for ambeint mics for guitar cabs.

I bought the MXL 990 in a set along with the 991 small diaphram, they both work well, very clean tone and good performance. I probably wouldn't use these if I owned a studio, but for working in my home studio, they are a good buy.
